portion of the program will be moderated by a professor geoffrey hazard, a distinguished professor of law at uc hastings. the professor is a leading expert in the field of civil procedure of legal ethics and is good at asking questions. it is my pleasure to introduce our very special guest, stephen zack, president of the american bar association. with nearly 400,000 members, it is the largest volunteer professional membership organization in the world. mr. zack is the first hispanic american to serve as the president and the second to be born abroad. he was only 14 when his family emigrated from cuba under harrowing circumstances, including last minute detention by the secret police. he made it here. in two lines -- and two lines come to mind when i think of him. "this is my country, land of my choice. this is my country, here i found voice." what a voice it is. he earned his aba at the university of florida and he is now in their hall of fame. he is a partner in the miami office of the national law firm. his clients range from former vice president al gore to philip morris, to the nation
at our annual meeting. it tells people going to law school exactly what they are in for and you need to understand that the accreditation part of the american bar association is under a completely separate organization as a result of an agreement we have with the department of justice and department of education, so that we don't have any antitrust issues. that is an independent group. we at the american bar association are asking law schools to prepare for -- prepare 10 simple questions about what it costs to go to law school, how many of their students are employed upon graduation in real jobs, not artificial jobs, and we think it is going to be helpful. we also have a website that has a lot of information for anyone considering to go to law school, but probably the most important statistic that these potential students don't know is that the median income of lawyers in the united states is $62,000. they need to understand that before they incur $100,000 in debt. is there always room for another good lawyer? we need good lawyers. there always is. you have to ask yourself how much t
. the nra has been clear thought would meet any gun laws with serious resistance. >> they are getting the message out rncht president's kids more important than yours? why is he skeptical but putting armed security in schools when his kids are protected at their schools? >> jon: and why does he get to veto bills and command an army when we don't? all right so the conversation has started and we're off to a deplorable start. [ laughter ] i swear to you if i didn't know any better and i'm not a big conspiracy guy, i would think the nra is an elaborate after vant geard joaquin phoenix style joke or a false flag operation run by michael moore in an attempt to discredit responsible gun owners. your response, mr. president. >> i believe the second amendment guarantees an individual right to bear arms. i believe most gun owners agree we can respect the second amendment while keeping an irresponsible law breaking few from inflicting harm on a massive scale. >> jon: interesting open on his part. i thought he was going to say if you bring up my kids again i'll drum strike you're (bleep) to king
ability to say, did you actually choose that and did you choose it in a way that the law would recognize. so the law all of the time develops concepts that scientists are interested in studying. it might be competency, for example. well, competency is really a multifaceted construct from a legal perspective. it could be competency to be executed, it could be competency to commit a crime. it could be competency to contribute to the decision as to whether voluntarily commit yourself to a mental hospital. it could be competency to participate in an abortion decision. so competency means many different things. the first thing you have to do as a scientist is ask the question, well, what does the law mean by it because if you want me to measure it, i have to somehow apply it. so going back to the question of free will, because a scientist can't operationally define it, they can't measure it, they're not really that much use to legal debates about free will. now, what does it mean on the legal side? i actually think the idea of free will or what is often referred to as volitional control plays
like anyone else under the law. for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to unanother must be equal, as well. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright, young students and engineers are listed in our workforce rather than expelled from our country. we know that america thrives when every person can find independence and pride in their work. when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship. we are true to our creed when a little girl born in to the bleakest poverty knows that she has the same chance to succeed as anybody else. >> and joining me now with his reaction to the president's speech yesterday, democratic congressman from maryland, chris van hollen. thank you so much for your time. >> it's great to be with you, tamron. >> as have perhaps read yourself or heard "the new york times" is calling the president's unapologetic, evolved. we ask the question, is this the liberal reagan? what is your thoughts on this
coming together of law enforcement, educators and industry and a variety of other folks and nonprofits organizations and really understand the issue and dive into it. it's been awesome and a ton of learning has gone into this. alice is amazing. everything that happened with time warner and got together a year ago and partnered up on this and wouldn't it be great if we got two major media organizations together, one traditional media which has a a lot of strength in eaching people via tv and one reaching people socially and if you could gather these together imagine what we can do? and so i think you called sizzle real. it was a sizzling experience to be in a high school in hare land and felt like a football pep rally but it was about bullying and they all took the pledge to stop it when they see it and amazing experience and tip of the hat to time warner to really understanding the issue and putting the weight of the media empire behind it to reach people, and second of all understanding how you sort -- there is the bully and there is the person being bullied but what if we got the
a quick summary of the laws. the ada, calif. building code, the civil rights, and our experts here will elaborate. we also have a list of certified caps at work in san francisco for you. carla johnson with the mayor's office of disability has created a really good it died of out to interview your experts to make sure you are getting the best quality product for you. been next -- the money you pay for the inspection you can take as a tax deduction. any money that if you have taken can be applied as a tax deduction. this can be done on an annual basis. next, the opportunity, and a fund -- opportunity loan fund, providing for small businesses to pay for the inspection or to make improvements needed. to do it before you receive the lawsuit. and lastly, we of the bar association and their resources. they're providing their legal service for you. this last thing i am going to share with you in terms of what we have seen in our office is that with the individuals, that does not necessarily mean an individual will follow up with a lawsuit. what we've seen in our office is the individual's
inability as a civil society, a nation that takes such great pride in the rule of law, to in some way come to grips with the mace of of guns and violence -- with the place of guns and violence. and before we begin this discussion, i'll just tell you one very personal anecdote. three days before the sandy hook shooting, i was in denver, colorado, on personal business. and i was driving through the denver suburbs, and i passed into aurora rah, colorado, and saw the sign and thought to myself -- as journalists often do -- oh, my god, this just disappeared from our landscape. it happened not that long ago in which a young man, now appears to be utterly deranged, b went into a movie theater and began shooting down people with an assault weapon. and it went away. the not part of the presidential debate, it was not part of the fabric of our lives, it was not part of the daily journalistic diet. so on that wednesday night i e-mailed the producer of the "meet the press" show that was coming up on that sunday in which they would be talking about big ideas that america needs to be thinking about. and
a proposed law that would reduce felony drug possession crimes to a misdemeanor. this is what 13 states have done. we not only bring these issues to the forefront, but have the opportunity to participate -- and we have cards that you could fill out and questions. this promises to be a year of reform and change like we have never seen, and we now see prisoner reentry programs being implemented. we're still spending too much money and resources and not enough on rehabilitation and reentry. this november, the voters will decide on limiting the three strikes law. issues and measures long overdue. it is clear there is much more that needs to be done. according to a study that was published this month -- since 1989, 2000 people have been wrongfully incarcerated and they served collectively, 10,000 years. an average of 11 years person. i would like to thank the people who made this summit possible. memoranda -- amy devon -- many volunteers and all of our speakers and panelists. i would like to thank the co- sponsors, and the bar association of san francisco. i would like to thank them for their hel
communities? and i think perhaps the law enforcement folks feel the cultures in the communities and see that come out in the adults. i would like to hear about how do you affect a culture and even in san francisco we have many cultures affecting what is valued, what is criticized. >> you know i think that richard touched upon this. it's a relationship of power and it's clearly going to differ from community to community; right. when i was telling you i was picked because because i didn't speak english or at all initially there were only about 5% of us that were hispanic in the school and wouldn't be the case if 95% are hispanic and english speaking as a second language, but i think the way that we can deal with the issue is we ought to first of all start with the notion of respect for others, and respect for others can work across the line. it doesn't necessarily mean -- it doesn'tly has to deal with the culture. is how we treat one another? and i think we have to be very clear in our educational process and the communication to our people and what is acceptable behavior and what is
in law enforcement for years and years. and, mike, let's just you and i walk through what we know right now as we're looking at these pictures, coming into cnn for first time, what more do you know? >> well, brooke, we're hearing also from our affiliate kprc, they have one person detained there on campus. where on campus? we don't know. they don't -- they're not sure if this is the person who was the active shooter there, on the campus of the lone star college, harris north campus, they don't know. but i've been watching this for a number of minutes before i came on with you, brooke. and i've seen at least two, possibly three people that they had been working on, the ems has been working on, there on the scene. we don't know the conditions of anyone injured there. we don't know whether or not this person they have detained again is the active shooter that was there on campus. >> all right, mike. what is happening as we see this tremendous law enforcement presence? how do they, as we know that this college is telling people, if you're on campus, shelter in place. look at the masses of ca
and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of bill becoming law. >> so it appears that pressure is building on senator reid to act. meanwhile late today, sources say speaker boehner told g.o.p. members behind closed dors the house budget chairman paul ryan is working on a budget plan that would balance within ten years. boehner says he applauds that goal and shares it. >> bret: mike emanuel live on the hill. thank you. more than 24 hours after promising to respond to the threat of climate change, president obama has something else to respond to tonight. nebraska's governor approved a new route for the controversial keystone oil pipeline to put the ball scarily in the president's court. chief white house correspondent ed henry tells us that is one issue getting a second look tonight. >> attending a prayer service after a long night of celebrating the start of his second term. ♪ ♪ >> president obama woke up to a flood of cheerleading headlines about how he offered an aggressive liberal vision to act on major issues. >> we will respond to the threat of climate cha
rest on our way out of this problem. i no longer want to hear those words. this is not to give the law- enforcement a short shrift. i have had an impact on my husband's life, some of the unwanted. but he has had an impact on mind. i have done extensive work with law enforcement, with the lapd and the los angeles county sheriff's. i am here to tell you that crime has been driven down in los angeles because of their efforts, but not only because of their efforts. so what does the collaboration look like. i want you to keep some ideas in mind. there is no first among equals. what we learned in los angeles was that oppression alone was not the answer. it did not work. there were record highs in gang violence in 2005. i want to tell you what has happened between 2005 and 2012. number one, the grass roots -- the disorganize, fragmented, passionate grass roots must be part of this. the community members who go to county supervisors meetings, the members who pass out fliers, the youths who have been in the juvenile justice system that are now part of the coalition -- those individuals must hav
in our city. to support the police department and law enforcement system of doing more predictive policing using both data and technology to help us do that. and then, of course, i think the most important part is to organize our communities and work with community-based organizations, families, religious groups, and everybody that's on the ground to find more ways to intervene in violent behavior out there and utilize resources such as education systems, our community jobs programs, others that might allow people to go in different direction. the unfortunate and very tragic incident in connecticut in sandy hook elementary school of course heightened everybody's awareness of what violence can really be all about. and as we have been not only responding, reacting to this national tragedy that i think president obama has adequately described as broken all of our hearts, and in every funeral that has taken place, for those 20 innocent children and six innocent adults in the school districts, and school administrators, we obviously have shared in that very tragic event, all of us. it
else under the law. >> and the president takes the first step towards challenging congress on climate change. >> we, the people, still believe that our obligations as americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> before leaving the capitol, president obama pauses to absorb the moment. >> take a look one more time. i'm not going to see this again. >> what about women's rights? on today's 40th abc anniversary of roe v. wade our exclusive nbc news-wall street journal polls shows for the first time a majority of americans say abortion should be legal in almost all cases. candid camera. the girls snap pictures. they dance. they laugh it up during the parade. >>> nbc's al roker scores a thumbs up from president obama. and gets a running handshake from vice president biden. >> mr. pres
, whether it's my ancestors from ireland and germany, many generations ago or my in-laws and brother's side of the family a generation ago from mexico. in every case, the people who by and large have come to america have come with a dream of living a better life than their children. getting an education, working hard. in many cases starting up their businesses and living the american dream and we ought to find a way to make that more possible. now, that also means we live in a society of rules and so we need to abide by the laws that i think there are practical ways to abide by those lawses. and any ethnic where they come from, should live the american dreams and what it stands for. >> greta: what do you do about those illegally here in this country? have you thought about that? that's one of the thornier issues. >> well, clearly there's got to be a well thought-out process in doing this, a balance between respect for the law and all the talk about securing the border, which is important, is that we've got a mess when it comes to the federal agency that controls immigration. we've got peopl
evidence is the most useful. we have a standard in criminal law called the reasonable person standard. this fictitious person that we measure everybody's conduct by. we say this is the person, the average person, the average juror, the average individual, the kind of conduct that we would expect an average member of society to live up to. well, as it turns out that none of us are quite average, right. and we might actually be much more like people who we share particular brain structures with or people who we share particular environmental and brain similarities to. so we might need to start thinking about more particularized notions of conduct based on what we would expect of a person who has that type of brain structure who had these types of environmental factors and then start to think about how we want to treat them. do we want to hold those people responsible for their actions or less responsible for their actions. are there certain people who would be better subject to medical treatment instead of incarceration. are there certainly people who we actually think would be
money and a lot of improvements and may not understand the nuances in relationship to the law of what is actually required and what is readily achievable, and so forth. >> so that is a new program that we launched right at the end of the year. and then, next sb 1186 to start off with, so as commission president mccarthy mentioned about one of the requirements of sb 1186 is the requirement of each municipality to collect a dollar with a business regular sleighsing or a license. >> there is a series of documents i have areached for you, right after... the treasures office has revised the business registration for new businesses to include this information and to have a statement on the back about sb1186 and why there is the additional, the dollar being collected and to do a reminder to businesses about their responsibility for ada compliance. and i am in conversation, this the notice comes directly from sb 1186, the law, which is on the tax and treasurer's form, so i am in conversation with them to also include our departments as a resource as well. so, hopefully that will take place. s
anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal than surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. our journey is not cleat until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright young students and engineers are he be liennisted n our workforce rather than expelled from our country. >> there's grievance there, not just rights. people waiting in line. i said this before, i was lucky to be there when south africans first got the vote, all south africans, and they waited for four or five hours and i thought that was unbelievable. and then to watch people in america in this advanced society of democracy having to wait eight hours. it looked like a punitive action by republicans to be blunt about it from state legislatures and big capital city that is decided, you know what? let's make it hard for these people. maybe we can cut down that vote. >> that's one of those great underr
council will again discuss paying veteran law enforcement officer bill bratton a quarter million dollars to advise on reducing violence. he's known for cutting crime but his critics complain about the tactics behind the successes. >>> the controversial tactic of using stun guns by sfpd will also be up for discussion tonight. the chief has been pushing for a pilot program allowing 100 officers to carry them and they would undergo special training on how to use the devices on the mentally ill. that meeting tonight set for 6:00 at the hamilton recreation center on gary. this is the first of three meetings the get input -- to get input from the public. >>> work is getting underway to repair the damage to a bay bridge tower fender damaged by a tanker. cbs 5 reporter elissa harrington joins us now with more on what it's expected to cost to finish the damage. >> reporter: it won't be done until sometime in the spring. just some of the damage that needs to be repaired. 40 feet of the bay bridge's fender system. it was crushed when an oil tanker sidesw
a new law that aims to clean up the use of crack cocaine. it's estimated around 1 million in brazil use the highly available and addictive drugs. not many can be force -- d. >> this is a man who refused treatment voluntarily. but for his daughter enough was enough. >> we will keep trying and trying. what i don't want is for him to die like that, because he doesn't have any more control of himself. >> and anna's father's crack addiction has caused them to live on the streets of brazil for the last two years. but now a controversial law has been passed allowing the compulsory treatment of the problem. it will stem from a judicial order when a person's life is in danger or seen as risking another's life. from there we will recommend her to a shelter where she will stay for a period of time. >> if there are 1 million crack users in the country, these described as chaotic crack land. but now officials and law enforcement agents are taking a new law to the streets. talking to one on the spot. in order to overcome this addictive drug, they say users must accept treatment which is usually not o
of ordinances and state laws, most of which were unconstitutional. and he didn't know what to do. johnson dearly did not want to send troops, united states army troops, into alabama. his fear was that this would precipitate a second period of reconstruction. just as the marchers were getting ready to head out in defiance of a court order with hundreds of deputies and troopers waiting for them, fruition came to a very subtle problematic plan that johnson had been working on all night. and king had been listening to all night. johnson sent former governor leroy collins who had taken the job to run the federal conciliation service on a plane at 3:00 in the morning. he was picked up by assistant attorney general john door and was driven to king's -- the place where king was staying. king came out of the bedroom wearing a robe and the two officials gave him a plan. lyndon johnson had participated in thinking it up. they said, reverend king, we have not only been talking to you, we have been talking to governor wallace and he doesn't want anymore bloodshed and what we would appreciate it if you would
for the protection of international law. access and distribution of assistance. >> barack obama celebrated the start of his second term as president. he delivered a speech to thousands gathered in the mall in washington. he told them to seize the moment. >> ♪ god bless amerca >> this is the day he fought so hard for. barack obama gets another chance to change america. >> i will faithfully execute the office -- >> his sweeping view was of a smaller crowd compared to four years ago. >> we have the obligation to shape the debates of wartime with the voices we lift in defense of our most enduring ideas. >> the president used his speech as a kind of a call to action. from climate change to the tax code, he promised reforms. >> our interests compel us to act on those who long for freedom. >> every word was meant to reinforce a progressive agenda. >> our agenda is not clear unless everybody is treated equally under the law. >> the theme of racial and sexual equality was front and center, i think a lot of the second term will be devoted to a lot of other things. >> the president takes one last look noting
concealed weapons on campuses, on school campuses, college campuses is actually against the law, is that right? >> reporter: i couldn't tell you about college campuses, but i will tell you there is a high school here in texas where teachers are carrying concealed weapons. that decision was made because of the remoteness of the school. it's not announced what teachers carry, but it is a decision they made because of their circumstances and because of the distance that law enforcement is away from them. i couldn't tell you the specifics about this particular campus. >> janet shamlian reporting for lone star college. we'll be back to you very soon. let's bring in former fbi profiler clint van zandt. clint, we heard this may have been some kind of dispute between two individuals with some being caught up in the cross fire. what are you learning from your sources? >> well, what i have heard unofficially, martin, and you and i know how confusing the reporting is in these stories initially, was that at least one of the two shooters allegedly had a weapon in a backpack and another had w
brothers and i grew up a long time ago, back in a time when certain places in our country had unfair laws that said it was right to keep black people separate because our skin was darker and our ancestors had been captured in far off africa and brought to america as slaves. ok. then we came to -- we come now to atlanta, georgia. the city in which we were growing up had those laws. because of those laws, my family rarely went to picture shows. in fact, to this very day, i don't recall ever seeing my father on a street car because of those laws and the indignity that went with them, daddy preferred keeping m.l., a.d., and me close to home where we would be protected. but we lived in a neighborhood in atlanta now called sweet arbor. and this is the street. you can see the cars. you haven't seen cars like that, have you? they don't have any like that now. ok. something like we used to call a t model ford and so tpot. ok. we lived there on the avenue. and on our side of the street, there were two-story frame houses, similar to the one we lived in. across the street crouched a line of one-story
as being part of a gang. the term "gang" is manifested through the media, and law enforcement for numbers. it was more of a community. i did not go to school and meet somebody. i lived on this block and this is where my grandmother's house was, or i was born and raised. what people may see on tv was at my front door. the killing and the dope dealing. it was right there. this was a community list of people, we just grew up together. there were no handouts and no one told us how to conduct ourselves. and tell us what to wear. someone could have a school fight, and we may be at the mall, and see the person we have a fight with. the army and navy have their bar fights. i did not see this as being a game, or a community. supporting each other, this may have been in a negative way. i did not have a stable household. many of them do not of their fathers are, where their father is dead. in their return, the block i gave up -- this is who i looked up to. he had a notorious reputation. there was the violence and in return, we had the pros and cons for that. a lot of people would mess wi
,000 people who liked it or didn't but did not think it rose to the level of passing a law about it. nevertheless supervisor wiener did. when i first arrived in san francisco, 38 years ago, the 11 members were paid less than 10,000 a year. no fringe benefits, no expense accounts, no staff. all were expected to be part of supervisors with real-time jobs. when -- quinton cob maintain his law firm. that is how it should be. the same thing at the state legislature. but that's a different discussion. career politicians are killing us. thank you very much. >> neck speaker. >> next speaker. >> [indiscernible] i hope i don't put my foot in my mouth. supervisors here, many coach operators have important jobs, we move 700,000 people each day. i want to remind supervisors and citizens of san francisco that we do have a job to do. most people appreciate what we do. i met london breed the san francisco firefighters toy drive. a nice person. i do know much about supervisors. one of my coahces out of flynn, after giants won, -- [indiscernible] we do an important job, i drive the 38 during the we
in settlements in the west bank, settlements that are regarded as illegal under international law. they used to vote for his party and say nessun are to -- netanyahu has abandoned them. >> i do not think anyone ever had a thought that they wanted to say. we might have expected that was a reality thrust upon us, but i do not think anybody wanted it. >> i know that he will still be a leader. but i want to make sure that the coalition is a coalition that i believe in. >> benjamin netanyahu voted early today, confident he was unlikely to lose his job, but also knowing he might well have to govern a more right-wing coalition. throughout this campaign, benjamin netanyahu has portrayed himself as the only candidate with the strength and experience to tackle israel's many problems. rejecting criticism from home and overseas, he is taking israel down a dangerous confrontational path. mr. netanyahu has authorized even more building in the settlements. there has been no progress in the peace talks with palestinians. the prime minister could isolate israel even further. >> if they often form a governmen
the break-room fridge. or through their. democratically elected representatives, enacts a gun control law of any kind. so we need to be ready. how are we gonna do that? >> it is time to get ready. start working out, start stretching. steerchg so important. you've got to stretch. trust me, when the (bleep) goes down, you do not want to pull a hammy. [cheers and applause] i recommend -- feel the like i'm in a road show of where the wild things are. i recommend hot yoga-- when you're mounting an armed insurrection, you want your chakras to be open. and your butt high and tight. [ laughter ] and you can't blame guys like yeager for being passionate because guns are the civil rights victims of our time. it's no coincidence that most of them are black. [ laughter ] and that i get nasty looks when i sit down with one at a lunch counter. [ laughter ] and i'm not the only one who thinks so. standing with me is larry ward founder of the first-ever gun appreciation day, which happens to be this saturday, the same weekend as martin luther king day. and that's no coincidence. >> i believe that gun app
tasks, equal pay for equal work, i thought we got that done with that, you know, ledbetter law. you know, gay marriage which he was against in his first campaign and during three of the first four years in office. voting protections, you know, i think this was a veiled attack at voter i.d. laws. and immigration reform which he had a chance to do when he had complete control of the congress in 2009 and 2010 and didn't bother to do and gun control. are all of these things only going to pass with democrat votes in 2013 and 2014? no. he's got to get the kind of gun control legislation you're talking about or is the congress going to validate gay marriage? i don't think so. he couldn't get climate control when he had complete control of congress, do we now think it's going to be passed with republicans in control of the house? no. and as a result, i think this was completely political and not focused on the big challenge the country faces which is getting our economy going. >> sean: i like what our colleague charles krauthammer said it's an ode to big government and you pointed out in the lis
in the first three months of pregnancy. the 7-2 ruling will likely lead to drastic overhall of laws on abortion. >> michael: it was 40 years ago that they legalized abortion in this country. the harris poll taken at that time found 52% of americans supported the decision. a wall street journal nbc poll found that 54% of americans believe women should be able to have an abortion. despite the widespread public support many lawmakers are doing whatever they can to take away a woman's right to choose. coming away from washington, d.c. is kay shepherd with mother jones magazine, kate, thank you for coming inside "the war room." >> thanks for having me. >> michael: kate, we read so much about mississippi. mississippi used to have 14 abortion clinics. now it just has one. how in 2013 does something like that happen? >> well, you know, it's a cumulative effect. it's in the early 80s that it had 14, but now the state has put on restriction after restriction. they have rules that you can't have an abortion after 16 weeks you have to have permission if you're a minor. it forced clinics to close. now you h
after restrictive abortion law passed. thank you both for joining me. congresswoman speier, it's a big day. big anniversary. big strides have been made. let's put this graphic up again. five states only have one abortion clinic left. it's a protected right. what's going on in these states though? >> well, there's been a systemic effort by the anti-choice community to go into the states and get laws passed to restrict access to abortion. last year and the year before were the worst two years in terms of the more restrictions that were placed on abortion opportunities for women. 135 laws were passed in over 30 states restricting a woman's right to choose. >> now, diane, when we talk about mississippi, we see that a lot of states and governors are really leading the charge. let me show you how some of the governors around the country are talking about women's right to choose and bors rights. watch this. >> to be clear, my goal and the goal of many of those joining me here today is to make abortion at any stage a thing of the past. >> we're going to continue to try to work to end abortion
legislation that would revise the penalty for simple drug possession under the state law, making drug possession laws that punish as a felony would now be punished as a misdemeanor. the new legislation, sb-1506, does not apply to anybody involved in selling or manufacturing drugs. the stated purpose of the bill is that it would help alleviate overcrowding in state prisons and county jails, and ease pressure on california's court system and result in millions of dollars in annual savings for both state and local governments. senator mark leno who couldn't join us today as been quoted as saying, quote, there's been no evidence to suggest long prison sentences deter or limit people from abusing drugs. in fact, time behind bars and felony records often have horrible, unintended consequences for people trying to overcome addiction because they are unlikely to receive drug treatment in prison and have few job prospects and educational opportunities when they leave. this legislation will help implement public safety realignment and protect our communities by reserving prison and jail space f

that leads in to a neighborhood. and right now, harris county constables aided by a number of law enforcement agencies are fanned out throughout that wooded area. looking for potentially another gunman. students have been told to shelter in place. many have already fled the campus but we're to believe many others are just locked down in the rooms they were in when the gun fire started. >> janet, it is our best understanding at this point that the victims in this shooting were caught in the cross fire of this argument that reportedly occurred. >> potentially. and that's what's hard about this is sounds like there were two people. gun tire. some reports of gang related and yet it is on a school campus and that it's possible both people in custody were among the shooters. it's also important to note, s.e. the victims taken to ben taub hospital in houston. which is the trauma center. there are closer hospitals to this campus but ben taub and the texas medical center is where the most serious cases are generally taken. >> can you describe, i understand it's a system of colleges. can you explain th
in this position. the reason for this short-term extension is to just get congress to actually follow the law that congress wrote in 1974 which is to pass a budget by april 15. we're not saying what kind of budget they have to pass. just pass a budget. reason is the senate is going on four years now for not having passed a budget. we think this gives us the time we need in this nation to have a good thorough, vigorous and honest debate of what it takes to get our fiscal house in order and about how to budget. families budget. businesses budget. our federal government should budget. we actually have a law that says we should budget. all we're saying is follow that law and that's why the short-term extension before you today. i'll let the rest of it speak for itself. >> thank you very much. mr. levin. >> first, welcome, mr. chairman. >> thank you. i think this is the first -- >> i think this is the first time i have been before you. the first time any of us has been in the chair. >> thank you. i hope i'll do good enough and make you want to come back. >> i'll come back whether i want to or not.
out means that we're getting close to a opt in program that would violate state law, and i assume that we have looked at what the limits are that the law imposes on us. would you elaborate a little bit how what we're doing has been shaped to fit within the state law or on the other hand where is there jeopardy for us? >> so the notification and education program survey and early notification portions are the sort of the new pieces that aren't required by state law. we are using those outreach efforts, those outreach components to inform who we talk to in the actual statutory opt out phase. we are not suggesting that anyone who is going to be served by cleanpower sf would not receive an opt out notification. anyone who wishes to participate can participate which sounds like opting in, but we won't enroll them after we have included them in an opt out process. so i think we have worked with the city attorney on this to make sure we are accurately understanding our obligation and that our approach is consistent with it. we think it is. and so we're not always this careful with o
provides. we're a civil rights office and civil right laws are not affirmative action laws and they don't say you have to do more for people with disabilities. you have to provide accommodations, particularly if requested, but because we have members who sometimes have participated on the bridge line, we have allowed that. i will get into a little bit of weeds here, we're a passive meeting body. we're not a policy-making body. the city attorney of the berkeley and state- the city of berkeley fought having a bridge line for their disability council and were successful with the state. they said that having a bridge line for council members to vote is a violation of the brown act and that to have a bridge line you have to declare the individual council member's home a meeting place. that anybody from the public could go there as well, which was goofy, but that is the law. but in any case, we have that. other public bodies don't and they don't have to. >> so
and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law, for if we are created equal, the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. >> although racial equality was front and center, i think a lot of the second term will be devoted to other things. >> the president takes one last look, noting he will not see this again. will not ever be the focus of the 9000 person parade. he could barely stop himself from dancing, one last night to celebrate his historic presidency before he begins what is expected to be a huge fight with congress. >> president obama's speech dealt mostly with domestic issues. there was not much on foreign policy. let's take a listen to what he did have to say. >> we will uphold our values through strength of arm and rule of law. we will show the courage to try to resolve our issues peacefully, not because we are naive about the dangers we face but because engagement can lift suspicion and fear. america will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe, and we will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage a crisis abroad, and
. they make laws that we have to follow. it gives me great pleasure to introduce the president of the board of supervisors, david chiu. [applause] >> good afternoon. first, if any of you have ever wondered what an ls -- and elected officials sounds like with anesthesia and his mouth, i want to let you know that i got out of a dental chair 20 minutes ago after a few hours of dentists work. but i wanted to give a few remarks of how i think we are doing. i'm very much more are optimistic about how we're doing than four years ago. i read an article from the chronicle and it said that the candidates disagreed on everything, except for the need to crack down on entertainment violence. i did not propose anything for the first six months until there were half a dozen people affected. that was followed by a terrific shooting, which was then followed by an incident in union square. i want to take a moment and thank the san francisco police department for your input. if we pass legislation to require additional security requirements and plans. we pass legislation to give the entertainment commission m
that was a violation of the rules or law or what are they doing now that will be different, well they partnered with an outof state bank to seasonally say that we are no longer subject to the limits and 36 apr that is set in article california law and they partnered with an out-of-state bank and said, we are subject to federal segregation gleyings and is think charged an apr of four 100% and so they have agreed to abide by california's limits they have discontinued that relationship with the out-of-state bank and as they also have established this settlement fund to repay eligible bars to get restitution until the amounts that i described. >>> so if you go door loan do you have a comparison to give us an idea. average income or middle income do you have a concrete example of something like that to put dollars and cents of how much they were screwed? i can testimony you this it's har hard to come up with a timcal case but what you say because the interest rates being charged people could not get the principal paid down or the interest rate paid down because the number accumulating continued to
license transfer to them should the modifications be declined. some of these laws on the books a little archaic, and i will give you an example. we now have live entertainment in san francisco, which allows amplified music until 10:00 p.m. if the conditions has no entertainment, and the entertainment, it also includes this limited live provision. we have determined in the city that this legislation is good -- good legislation. there's no conditional use requirement to have this. a lot of people today want to have food, drink, and be able to have some music. how can we get the limited live entertainment excluded from the know amplified or no live entertainment excluded on the transfers? >> that is going to mostly driven locally. most of the conditions you'll ever see on an abc license are because we rely, to a great extent, on the police department and local officials to determine what is best for their communities. i'm not trying to pin this on you guys or blame you guys, but we do try to work with you. we do not tend to want to overrule the police department very often. now th
